The Photographic Angle (TPA) is a charitable organisation set up to promote the education of the public in the art and science of photography. We stage exhibitions that are free to enter and that travel across the UK transforming otherwise empty spaces into photographic galleries. Exhibitions comprise large scale photographs together with technical data, information about the photographic theme, boards containing inspirational quotes and boards containing hints and tips on photography. Professional, student and amateur photographers submit their work for possible inclusion in one of our travelling exhibitions, which are curated by our Head of Design. The work that we do offers the public a chance to explore this fascinating medium which can be art, a profession, or simply a pastime.

'Forgotten' Competition Coming Soon!

We forget things, things are left to rot, to decompose, to biodegrade. Some things are just left, to be covered up, eventually buried with the passing of time.

Sometimes people feel that they are forgotten, they sit alone with their memories, every line on their face, every twinkle in their eyes a testament to the life they have lived and the wisdom they now have, the stories they would love to tell, if there was someone who would hear them.

The challenge for this competition is for you to capture something or someone that has been forgotten and show us the beauty that can be found within it.

This competition will close for entries on 31st December 2019 at midnight (GMT)

Our submission process has changed

Anyone who has submitted work to be included in one of our catalogues in the past, would have done this via a submissions page link. However, due to an overwhelming and fantastic response to our competitions, TPA have decided to curate its catalogues from the best of our competition entrants. The quality of work submitted to competitions over the years has been outstanding hence the decision to merge the two.

In short, anyone interested in having their work displayed at our venues should enter our competitions instead. The favourites will be contacted in due course throughout the year as and when a new catalogue print is scheduled. Please view our competitions page for further details.

All Exhibitions are free to enter!

This is just a little reminder that all of our photography exhibitions are free to have a look around. We welcome group visits from schools, colleges and universities and will do whatever we can, to ensure that students gain the most from their experience. Please email or give us a call on 0800 028 7338 to discuss this further.
